GENERAL SILAS M. BALLY,
"A. man who from his youth up,
has fought the battles of Republican
ism in a region where no hope of
success could add vigor and seal to
the contest, and.with no reward save
the consciousness of having served
the cause he loved. A man who has
attested his love of liberty and lavr,
by service on the field of glory and
of blood, who won his promotion in
the glorious Pennsylvania Reserves,
from Captain to Brigadier, by meri
torious service on the field. A man
who stood in the red bell of battle at
Drainsville, on the Peninsula, at
Gaines' Mill,, South Mountain, Antie
tam, Fredericksburg and ,the Wilder
ness, and who bore witness with his
blood that he loved his country well.
He bears upon his person the rough
scars left by the cruel cannon balls,
and will carry to hi& grave the evi
dence of his patriotism and courage.
He is able and worthy to lead Repub
licans to Victory as he led, his regi
ment to war. (Speech of Attorney

year. Voters who change their residences
from one election district to another re
quires a residence of at least sixty days
in the district where the citiz(n shall offer
to vote. t.ate and county tax must have
been paid within two years. Every qual

. fur the neglect of which the reason should
be very strong. Without such a. reason
the neglect to vote is an unpatriotic refus

THE HUTT OF REPVIILICANS
Froth the Phltauelrbla Prees; October nth
The Republicans of Pennsylvania
have reached a Point where it is im
portant for them to take their bear
ings and wisely steer their course.
They are bound to consider in a high
and patriotic spirit what , they owe to
themselves and, what they owe to
their Republican brethren throughout
the land. They must remember not
,immediate impulses of
the hour but the vital and transcend
ent interests of the future. It is
easy, in a moment -of unreflecting
passion and in striking at the abuses
which have grown up, to pull down
the temple of Republican organiza
tion ; but; it is the work of time-add
patriotism and statemanship to build
up a sound and enduring superstruc
ture. There may be a reckless lead!
ership which is disastrous and which
justifies resistence ; and there;may
also be a method of opposition which
is equally inconsiderate and destruc
What is the duty of honest, siOcere,
earnest Republicans in this campaign?
What the duty of those who right
fully class themselves as Independent
Republicans? First of all, they are
pre-eminently patriotic Republicans
—Republicans from conviction, Re
publiCiins from a profound devotion
to true Ike Publican principles; Re
publicani from an intelligent appre
hension of the vital importance of
Republicaw'ssfitndincy to the high
est welfare of the country. They
recognize no map as superior—to
themselves in' fidelity to sound Re
publicanism. , They are party men,
and understand full well that politi
cal principles and . public ends are to
be-advanced through =the 'party or
ganization. They , know thatthe flag
of liberty :was sttiomfuny planted_
at Yorktown and Oettysburg i not by
the_broken blows of straggling pe
rinea, but by the united onset of the
grand army: ; ,
The only sound
_basis of letting
party organization is the free union
of all who hold the - same great prin
ciples: What is the true position of
the Inde - pendent Republicans? gimp
ly this—they say to those who have
been identified with a, different ele
ment: "We ask nothing for our
selves which we do not 111111 concede
to you;.we recognize- that you are
just as essential to the party as we
are; We - grant you the same right
to a free voice, to a respectful con
sideration and to all your just strength
which we claim for ourselves. We
only insist , upon a free vote, an hon
est count :end - - fair representation.
What we resist is an arbitrary and
usurped control; what we demand - is
the honest rule of an honest majority. We seek only enktal rights - and air
play. If with this free, untramm led
popularexpression you can beat us,
if the real' majority of Republicans
are with you, then i you are entitled
to lead; if not, then it is your duty,
as it is ours, to let the majority rule.
Our cardinal, decisive principle is
free speech; a free vote and free rep
This is the impregnable position of
the Independent' Republicans, and
this high principle requires them to
.fight heir battles within the party
until it shall become clear that with
in the party they cannot secures fair
expression or obtain their just rights.
That time has not yet come. -If the
Ind endent Republicans are true to
themselves, if they shall be wise and
united, if they . shall not sacrifice
the strength of their position by ill
considered action, that time will nev
er come, because in entering upon
the succeeding battles they will speak
with such clearness and force that no
power will dare defy them. After
the decision of the party tribunal to
go outside of the party and unfurl
the Independent flag is revolution,
and revolution is justifiable only
when all' other measures of redress
fail. That extreme resort remains
as the reserved right of all patriotic
citizens, and with such a weapon the
Independent Repulicans can •in the
future protect themselves and pro
tect the principles and the cause they
cherish. , But they are not ready to
surrender the battle within the par
ty ; they are not yet ready to aband
on the good old Republican flag and
leave it wholly in the hands of the
- machine ; they are ngt yet ready to
go outside of the party and thus
sacrifice the right to a free voice in
its future councils. They want to
rescue the party from admitted evils,
but in cutting off the tumors they do
not want to kill the patient.
But will not the election of Gener
al Rath; especially in the face of an,
Independent movement, irretrievably
establish the machine and crush out
all independence within the party?
No—not any more than the success
of 1879 did ; not any more than the
control of the Convention, of 1880
did. In spite of these triumphs the
Independent strength has gone on
increasing until at Harrisburg the
other day it mustered more , than a
third of the Convention. The Inde
pendent Republicans made no ieal
fight; they remained passive in the
faith of an agreement; they opened
their batteries only ten days before
the Convention after most of the
delegases had Nen elected, and yet
they rallied nearly a hundred votes.
If they ! stand together within the
party and remain both firm and pru
dent they can command the future—
not necessarily for the exclusive
triumph of their own wing any more
than of the other, but for fair play
and just consideration all around.
The movement of Mr. WOLFS is not
the movement of the Independent
leaders or the Independent masses,
and hence its failure and the election
of General BAILY will not predjudice
the Independent cause in the future.
It is said. that Mt. WorFE's pro
ceeding is the : logical sequence of
the Independent revolt in the Legis
lature last winter, and is entitled to
the same support. This is i not true.
That revolt was simply an appeal
from the constrained dictation of the
caucus to the tree action of the Leg
islature. ' It never for a single mo
ment jeopardized the eleCtion of a
Republican United States Senator.
This campaign of Mr. WOLFE, on the
contrary, if it has any effect at all,
will throw the State into Democrat
ic hands. Thus the' difference be
tween the two , movements is as wide
as the chasm between Republican
victor3r - :and Democratic success. We
do not impeach Mi. Wom's motives;
but we lissent from his method. !The
great body of the Independent',rep
resentatives appreciate 'the broad
distinction, and see that both prin

A TRUE BILL.
.131nitenn Indicted ha Eleven Minutely
WAsurixoroN, October9.+' The in
dictment against Charles J. Guiteau,.
for the murder of James. A. Garfield,
late President of the United States,
was presented to the grand jury yes
terday morning. " The indictment
embraces eleven counts; and is drawn
with great minuteness. Each count
repeats the charge that Guiteau felo
niously and wilfully and of his malice
aforethought did kill and m u rder
against the form , of the statute in
- such case made and provided and
against the peace and government
of the United States. The variations
are regarding the time and place of
death and the court's jurisdiction,
and are drawn so as to cover every
possible loop-hole through which the
prisonermight escape. For instance,
the only variation in the fifth count
is a change in the order of mention
of the' places in which death is said
to have occurred, the county 'of
Washington and the District of Ca
lumbia being put - first. The sixth
count recites that the offense charged
was committed in the Baltimore and
,railroad depot, in the city
of Washington, which building stands
and at the same time stood on the
ground' belonging to and under the
exclusive, jurisdiction of the United
Stategi. The ninth count varied
by the introduction of the recital
that the district in which the offense
charged was committed constitutes,
a judicial circuit of the United States,
and that the county of Mtmouth
and State of New Jersey, w ere the
_said James A. Garfield died, form
part of a judicial circuit of the United
States, consisting -of the District, of
Columbia. In all other respects this
count is like the third. ,
At .12.45 the grand jury entered
the criminal court roam and :,re
sented the indictthent against Gui
teau, indorsed "a' true bill," and
